Latest Headlines

Josh Johnson could be scratched from Friday's start against the Yankees due to biceps soreness.

If it happens, it would only be precautionary, as he's expected to make his next scheduled start. However, it obviously isn't what you want to hear given his injury history. The 29-year-old right-hander has an ugly 6.86 ERA through four starts this season. The newly-claimed Aaron Laffey is the likely replacement Friday.

Hanley Ramirez exited Wednesday's game against the Rays in the eighth inning with an apparent injury.

Ramirez appeared to tweak his back on a swing in the sixth inning. He stayed in the game initially, but was replaced on defense in the bottom of the eighth inning. The Red Sox should provide an update after the game.

Phillies prospect right-hander Mark Appel had surgery Wednesday to remove a bone spur from his right elbow.

Appel is done for the year, but he's expected to be ready for spring training next year. The 2013 No. 1 overall pick had a 4.46 ERA and 34/20 K/BB ratio in 38 1/3 innings with Triple-A Lehigh Valley before hitting the disabled list with a right shoulder strain in late May. His stock continues to fade.

Royals placed OF Lorenzo Cain on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Yet another injury for the defending World Series champions. Cain hurt his hamstring while trying to leg out an infield single on Wednesday. The severity of the strain isn't yet clear. Brett Eibner will take his place on the active roster.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel worked out for the Astros.

Rosenthal notes that Gurriel posted a picture on Instagram of him in an Astros hat, though this doesn't mean that a deal is imminent. The 32-year-old has also reportedly had workouts with the Dodgers and Mets in recent days. He'd likely require some time in the minors to shake the rust, but he could be a factor in the majors in the second half.

Yunel Escobar (knee) remains out of the Angels' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday that Escobar will remain sidelined until at least Friday. If he's not ready by then, he'll likely be facing a backdated trip to the disabled list. Escobar hasn't played since last Thursday due to a bone bruise in his knee. Jefry Marte will continue to fill in at third base.

DJ LeMahieu (knee) is out of the Rockies' lineup again Wednesday.

LeMahieu appeared as a defensive replacement Tuesday and hoped to make it back to the starting lineup Wednesday, but the Rockies apparently don't want to rush things. Daniel Descalso will continue to fill in at second base.
Jun 29 - 1:13 PM

Trevor Story is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

Story went 0-for-4 in his return to the lineup Tuesday. With the quick turnaround, the Rockies are likely just being cautious about his injured finger. Cristhian Adames is playing shortstop and batting second.

Billy Hamilton exited Wednesday's game against the Cubs in the bottom of the first inning after he was hit in the head by a fly ball.

Adam Duvall and Hamilton were both going after a fly ball off the bat of Anthony Rizzo and the ball ultimately hit Hamilton in the head/face and resulted in an inside-the-park homer. Hamilton was on the ground for a couple of minutes before eventually walking off the field through the bullpen. The Reds will surely send him for tests to rule out a concussion. Tyler Holt replaced him in center field.

Yankees signed first-round pick OF Blake Rutherford.

Rutherford, a high school outfielder, was selected No. 18 overall in this month's draft. Jim Callis of MLB.com hears that he signed for $3,282,000, which is well above the slot value of $2,441,600 for the pick. The 19-year-old was among the best bats in this year's class and could prove to be a steal for New York. He's slated to report to the team's GCL affiliate to begin his pro career.
Jun 29 - 12:14 PM

Steven Moya (knee) is back in Wednesday's lineup against the Marlins.

Moya missed three straight games with right knee soreness. He's batting seventh in his return against right-hander Tom Koehler.
Jun 29 - 11:18 AM

Oswaldo Arcia was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Red Sox due to illness.

It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Nick Franklin will take his place in the lineup and play left field. Brandon Guyer will slide over to right field.
